On the spectacular slopes of the Athabasca Glacier, Chelsey meets up with veteran glacier climber Peter Lemieux and his faithful dog George.  Along with the DGT crew they discover the beauty of the glacier and how it is quickly receding due to climate change.  As Chelsey continues on the highway, wildlife sightings, waterfalls, green glacier lakes and stunning mountain peaks make it apparent that she is now in the heart of the Canadian Rockies.  Chelsey also gets to explore the peak of the Rockies via the Jasper Tramway, takes a boat tour to see Spirit Island and talks with local Jasper resident Mike Day, owner of Evil Daveís Restaurant, to learn more about the Jasper lifestyle.
